It was amazing time I had at Yoga School India (Yoga Vedanta Trust). I attended 200 hours yoga TTC last month in June, and I am so excited to learn more. I am looking forward to partake next level of yoga teacher training next year to further deepen my knowledge and acquire more proficiency as a teacher. Rishikesh is incredible place and I do encourage my friends to visit there at least once. The staffs are always helpful and kind to explain things in a way the most understandable. This was my first visit to India and it was a wonderful experience learning cultural values associated with yoga while deepening my personal practices and gaining skills to become a good teacher. I am very happy and thinking to partake higher level of yoga teacher training course. Thank you ver much!

I have decided to partake 300 hours yoga teacher training at Rishikesh Yoga Academy, and an overall I find it more than what I have expected from the course. The morning classes which include meditation and pranayama is refreshing and relaxing, a great start for the day. I find some difficulty with Ashtanga Vinyasa at times, but listing to the body and avoiding overstretch, with daily practice I find myself becoming substantially more flexible and stronger. The lectures give better insight and deeper meaning to the practice. 300 hours yoga teacher training is a complete package and not just asanas. Hatha Yoga is perfect for developing awareness about correct postures and alignments. The facilities are good with room and food items. The location is beautiful and foasters the meditative state of mind. Overall, the course is perfect for deepening practice and developing firm teaching formation.

My life has been joyful and placid but I always felt incomplete until I partaken yoga teacher training course. I had a deep desire to visit Rishikesh, the yoga capital, some day and I made it in April when I got an opportunity to attend 300 hours yoga teacher training course organized by Rishikesh Yoga Academy. The well managed syllabus and motivating teachers in a caring environment has helped me to become more proficient and more professional in my work. It was not only about postures and gestures but it was about the core understanding of yoga teachings and developing skills that enabled me to teach others. Namaste!

Yoga teacher training here at Rishikesh Yoga Academy (Yoga Vedanta Trust) is all about health, its all about alternative sciences and its all about alternate ways of living. Good habits are growing and the most important thing that I have learned here is about the relationship, not only with other human beings but with nature as well. On the regular basis, I think, I am practicing Yoga and it seems like, looking at it, I have been successful in establishing coordination with Yoga postures and my body. I feel harmony within and with outside world. It is amazing learning advance Yoga under kind masters and supportive environment I found at the Ashram. Namaste!

I had a great experience here. Very beautiful people, beautiful souls, beautiful hearts and they really know how to connect with the people here that come from different parts of the world. They make them feel welcomed and that we are all one. I planned to take my experience and wisdom that I have gathered from here and take it back to my country to share it with my students as well as my family and my friends. Yoga is growing rapidly and I see lots of people are coming to India, especially in Rishikesh to be able to get inspiration and absolutely, it is spreading and that what we want to, we want to let people feel to take a little step to be better for the goodness of their own and everybody else.
